Grandma Sharon's Sugar Donuts 1 can regular biscuits (not Grand size) oil sugar Put sugar in a large bowl. Set aside. Seperate biscuits, punch a hole in the middle of each biscuit. (I use a wooden spoon handle to help me do this). Heat oil (about 1/2 cup, maybe a little more) until hot, but not smoking. Drop biscuits into hot oil, and brown on each side. (Watch carefully as it doesn't take them long to get brown). Remove biscuits with spatula, and then drain on plate lined with a paper towel. Then roll each donut into sugar. Note: I remember Momma making these for us when we were little. They are wonderful, and so easy. Be careful not to have the oil too hot as it will cook the outside of the donut, but the middle will be doughy.

Easy Party Lasagna 1 can cream of mushroom soup 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese 1/4 cup milk 1 1/2 lbs. ground beef 1 can tomato soup 1 pkg. spaghetti seasoning mix 1 tsp. italian seasoning 2 tsp. garlic powder 1 cup water 6 dry lasagna noodles Mix mushroom soup, 1/2 cup cheese and milk in bowl. Set aside. In skillet over medium high heat, cook beef until browned. Pour off fat. Stir in tomato soup, package of spaghetti mix, garlic powder and italian seasoning. Add water. Heat through. In a 2 quart baking dish spoon half the meat mixture. Top with 3 lasagna noodles and mushroom soup mixture. Top with remaining 3 lasagna noodles and remaining meat mixture. Cover with foil. Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 45 minutes. Uncover. Sprinkle remaining cheese over top. Bake 10 minutes more, or until cheese is melted. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting. Note: I made this recipe when Alex was staying with us in Arkansas many years ago and he actually liked it, even though I guess he doesn't normally eat "casseroles". This lasagna recipe is different as it uses mushroom soup and the noodles are uncooked but it is really good. Make sure the noodles are covered well with the sauce or they will be dry.
